Additional Information

Silverado Vineyards began in the mid-1970’s when the Miller family purchased land in Yountville, quickly followed a year later by the purchase of the Silverado Vineyards. It is a stunning vineyard, located on the Silverado Trail east of Oakville, California in the Napa Valley Wine Region.

The name for Silverado Vineyards comes from an old abandoned mining town at the far end of the Napa Valley. It’s an appropriate symbol representing three generations of the Miller family who are still “prospecting” for wine by coaxing something as precious from the soils that are in their care. To that end, through the years the family has nurtured the land, their vines and the wine they produced to become a recognized symbol of excellence.

With a strong sense of responsibility toheir community, employees, and the environment, a 100% of their vineyards use sustainable farming practices and 50% of the winery is powered by solar panels. They are continually looking for better ways to be good stewards of the land and the people they affect.

Silverado Vineyards Estate Sangiovese is hard to grow, but fun to drink. Silverados's Soda Creek Ranch’s rocky, weak soils tame Sangiovese’s natural vigor. They sculpt clusters for optimal ripening. No aggressive pump-overs or pressing in the winery help keep the pure, fresh fruit flavors that we think make Sangiovese so charming.

This wine averaged 13.7 months in 27% new oak barrels of which 93% French oak and 7% Hungarian oak barrels.
